I am travelling to Turks and Caicos, I see that I can add a data plan, but I don’t see where or how I can make or receive calls. Can I? I will be there for only two weeks.

    Hi Mark,


    Fizz can only offer you data like Dapfizzer show you.

    Fizz say this about roaming

    Important : You will not be able to make calls while roaming outside your Canada or the United States.

    Roaming calls (incoming or outgoing) will be available at a later time. We will update this FAQ when we have a firm date.

    In the meantime, you will be able to use data, and send/receive texts when you travel outside your coverage zone. To make and receive calls, you can use messaging apps such as WhatsApp or Messenger.


    They suggest you to buy a SIM card abroad

    We recommend purchasing a local SIM card. This will give you access to better rates on data. Helpful tip: use messaging apps (whatsApp, Messenger...) to stay in touch on the road instead of calling and texting

    You can use Fongo for free to make or receive calls using a Canadian number on a data plan.

    You can even set up call forwarding from your normal Fizz number to that Fongo number, so someone calling you won't even notice that you are abroad.

    A bit geeky as a solution, but hey, it's Fizz ;)
